Cupcakes are all the rage these days, and for good reason. These diminutive desserts are automatically
portion controlled, and they’re just darn cute! Instead of traditional vanilla and chocolate, we chose a
garden variety: Carrots and zucchini aren’t just for salads; they add moisture and texture to desserts as well.
There aren’t enough veggies to count for one of your daily servings, but you are getting a tasty
treat that has more fiber and less fat than even a slice of traditional carrot cake.
Carrot cake usually has a spicy taste, but we lightened that up by adding a fresh orange flavor.
These cupcakes are perfect for an Easter brunch, a children’s birthday party (no need to tell them
the “confetti” inside comes from vegetables), or a graduation celebration.
These cupcakes were a hit during our taste test!

This is one variation of my mom's basic coffee cake. One day a friend gave my mom a jar of figs so she just made a cake out of them. You can also use this recipe and substitute bananas, cherries, apples, or just about any other fruit for the figs. When you are using a more or less liquid/juicy fruit, adjust the amount of yogurt you use. Make sure that your total liquids are about 2 cups.

So low in calories- NO fat!
